Bob Shoop (born August 18, 1966) is an American football coach and the former head coach at Columbia University. He currently serves as the defensive coordinator for the Penn State University program.

Shoop is a 1988 graduate of Yale University and both played and coached under Carmen Cozza. In his senior year, he was named to the All-Ivy team. He later served as an assistant coach at Yale and as defensive coordinator from 1994 to 1996. His reputation as a defensive coach later led to him being hired by Tom O'Brien at Boston College when the former was hired as head coach.

In 2003, Shoop was hired by Columbia University with the hopes that he would turn around the struggling program. He was fired shortly after the end of the 2005 with a record of 7–23 in his three seasons with the team. His 2005 team went winless in the Ivy League and he never finished above 6th place.

From 2007 to 2010, Shoop served as the defensive coordinator at William & Mary. On January 31, 2011, he was named as the defensive coordinator for the Vanderbilt Commodores, under new head coach James Franklin.[1]
